Clash of the Titans is a British/American fantasy action media franchise based on characters and myths of Ancient Greek mythology. The first film, Clash of the Titans, was released in 1981 with a remake made in 2010. The remake spawned a sequel, Wrath of the Titans, in 2012. The series began with Clash of the Titans in 1981. It was followed by a remake of the same name in 2010, and a sequel Wrath of the Titans in 2012.
In 1984, a concept for a sequel for the original 1981 film was proposed to MGM, but was never made. The film would have been called Force of the Trojans. In November 2011, Warner Bros. hired Dan Mazeau and David Leslie Johnson to develop and write a treatment for a third installment, Revenge of the Titans. The pair had previously written Wrath of the Titans, which was still in post-production at the time. In the spring of 2013, Sam Worthington said he didn't think a third movie would be made.
